We offer an intra-uterine contraceptive device (coil) fitting service for our patients.

If you are thinking about having a coil fitted please discuss this with your usual GP at Greyfriars before scheduling an appointment at the clinic.

Please watch the following video before attending the clinic:

Before you can have the device fitted on the day, we need to make sure there is no risk of you being pregnant.

You can ensure this by using effective contraception right up until your appointment.

iudW.png

If you already have an IUD or IUS in place: please use additional contraception (e.g. condoms) or don’t have sex for a week before your appointment.

If you have recently been pregnant: please use effective contraception even if your periods have not started again or are not regular.

calendarW.png

Please keep a note of the date your last period started and your last sexual intercourse as we are going to ask for that.

pregnancy-testW.png

If there is any risk of pregnancy, you will require a negative pregnancy test three weeks after your last unprotected sex, before you can have your device fitted.

sti-virusW.png

You may require a chlamydia and gonorrhoea test. This can usually be done at the time of the procedure.

Most people feel fine after the procedure but some people get period-like stomach cramps, nausea or feel faint afterwards. In order to help reduce problems:

1-hourW.png

Allow one hour for your appointment so you are not in a rush.

eatW.png

Have something to eat before you come to the clinic.

medicineW.png

Take your usual dose of Paracetamol, Ibuprofen or whatever medicine you would use for period pains before coming to the clinic.

childrenW.png

Please do not bring small children or babies with you unless you bring an adult to look after them while you have your procedure.

pantiesW.png

Some sanitary protection is required e.g. panty liner.

pillowW.png

Please make sure you have no major commitments afterwards as you may need to take it easy for the rest of the day.

As irregular bleeding or pain can occur afterwards, you may wish to ensure that your appointment does not fall before a holiday or special event.​
